Pakistani style Zeera biscuits are popular biscuits in Pakistan that are known for their savory taste and aroma. “Zeera” means cumin in Urdu, and these biscuits have a distinct flavor of roasted cumin seeds that sets them apart from other sweet biscuits.
The recipe for Zeera biscuits involves mixing butter, sugar, egg, flour, and roasted cumin seeds to form a dough. The dough is then shaped into small balls and pressed down with a fork before baking in the oven until golden brown. The biscuits have a crumbly texture and a rich, buttery flavor with a hint of saltiness and spiciness from the cumin seeds.
Zeera biscuits are a popular tea-time snack in Pakistan and are often served with hot chai (tea). They are also a great accompaniment to soups and stews, or can be enjoyed on their own as a quick and satisfying snack.
